FANIMECON DANCE STAFF APPLICATION FOR 2012
(THIS APPLICATION IS FOR BOTH DJs AND OPERATIONAL STAFF)

UPDATED 10/10/11

Thanks to everyone who helped make the FANIMECON 2011 DANCE a success.
If you have comments or feedback about the 2011 DANCE see:
    http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,16380.0.html

As the 2012 head of dance, I am happy to announce that we are kicking
off the planning and staff recruitment early.  We will be continuing
the DJ Selection process and felt that it was helpful in identifying
talent that is truly interested in contributing towards the success
of the Con and not just looking for any opportunity to perform.

DO NOT Use this thread to make suggestions for 2012.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Operational Staff:

 Email us at dance(at)fanime.com if you are interested in being a part of
 our staff with the completed application form. Dance staff members will
 most likely need to participate as a reimbursed Volunteer in their
 first year.

 We are looking for members interested in helping to market the event inside
 and outside the con.  They will need be present during the operational hours
 of the dance and be able to participate in meetings during the months leading
 up to FanimeCon.

Things that should be noted:
 -   All Dance Staff positions are on a volunteer basis
     (there is no financial compensation).
 -   All Dance Staff positions must adhere to the requirements, rules, and code
     of conduct for all FanimeCon Staff members.
 -   All Dance Staff must attend the Dance Staff Meetings from the time they are accepted
     on staff to May (exceptions can be arranged with the department head).
 -   All Dance Staff must attend the FanimeCon mandatory Staff meetings in May.

DJs:

 Every year there are more DJs interested in spinning than spots available,

 original application requirements.  All applications after October 6 will need
 to follow the new application requirements.

FANIME DANCE 2012 DJ SELECTION PROCESS:
 BACKGROUND

  FanimeCon is a growing annual anime convention held at the San Jose
  Convention Center during Memorial Day Weekend.

  The 2012 Dance Management Team’s mission is to successfully plan dance
  events during FanimeCon which promote a fun, safe, and enjoyable experience
  for attendees.  These dance events must contribute to the overall success
  and support the growth of FanimeCon. 

  We will first be selecting DJs for the smaller second room based on the published
  criteria and then main room DJs will be selected later based on their ability to
  cover multiple genres, performance plans, and operational contributions. Dance
  management reserves the right to book headliners which are exempt from completing
  the application and application requirements.
 
  It should be noted that DJs and Performers might not be badged as staff, and some
  might need to purchase a member badge and participate as a reimbursed volunteer.
 
  Questions regarding these positions should be sent to dance@fanime.com.
 
  The Security Management Team (Rovers) is recruiting staff separately and inquiries
  should be made to rovers(at)fanime.com.

The Dance Management team will make the following changes in 2012 from the 2011 Application
Process:

 -   There are no guarantee in the number of timeslots, and your type of badge
     (one day vs weekend) will be determined by your contribution to the event,
     not by the number of hours you DJ.
        o   Involvement with other departments and other FanimeCon participation
            will not be recognized as meeting this requirement.

Things that haven't changed but should be noted:
 -   All Dance Staff positions are on a volunteer basis
     (there is no financial compensation).
 -   All Dance Staff positions must adhere to the requirements, rules, and code
     of conduct for all FanimeCon Staff members.
 -   All Dance Staff must attend the Dance Staff Meetings from the time they are accepted
     on staff to May (exceptions can be arranged with the department head).
 -   All Dance Staff must attend the FanimeCon mandatory Staff meetings in May.
 -   DJs must have been selected through the DJ Selection Process
     (Exception: Headliner DJs)

Every year there are more DJs interested than DJ Time Slots available. 
To DJ, you must have gone through the selection process:
 -   Previous staff participation will not guarantee a timeslot on the DJ Schedule.
